Talisker 15 Year Old
 57.3%   |    70cl

Rugged & smoky, this is the first-ever release of "The King o'Drinks..." as a 15 year old, matured only in freshly charred American oak hogshead. Famous the world over for a full bodied, rich character and powerful peppery finale, Talisker is made by the sea, like the oyster beds that teem with life in the clear waters of the island’s west coast.

Information

Distillery: Talisker

Age: 15 years old

Strength: 57.3%

Region: Island

Appearance

Full gold, with copper lights. Very good beading.

Nose

A mild nose-feel, with a noticeably spicy prickle, and lightly nose-drying. The aroma is immediately maritime, with notes of sea salt, dry seaweed, peeling boat varnish and warm sand, on a base of smouldering peat. Very spicy and malty. Honey and smoke. Even a drop of water supresses much of this.

Palate

A mouth-filling texture at natural strength, the taste is at first unexpectedly rich and sweet before a spiciness asserts itself, with a pinch of salt. The trademark chilli catch as you swallow is still there, while the pepperiness on the palate comes across in complex waves of drying spiciness. Interestingly, all these tastes are enhanced by a little water, which makes the effect more rounded, sweeter, and spicier still.

Finish

Long and spicy, with a delightful aftertaste. Lightly drying. With water, longer, spicier and more peppery. Leaves a thread of smoke on the tongue.
